Based upon teacher judgement using a range of evidence for example mock exams. At this stage still plenty of time to improve – most progress at AS happens between now and the exams Students should see subject teachers if they are concerned about their progress Support offered by curriculum areas include: Drop-in sessions Supported study Revision classes Small group work Individual support Upgrade Parents evening on 11th February Tutors will be working with students looking at ways forward with their learning P16 team will contact home if we are concerned about the overall progress of a student

6 The Voice of hindsight (based on survey of students after mocks)
Plan your revision! Colour code your plan and make sure it is balanced Go through past papers and markschemes as much as possible. Also look at examiner’s reports Make sure you do all of the homework you are set and get it in on time!! Follow the feedback you are given by your teachers – they are experts at how to do well in the exams The Voice of hindsight (based on survey of students after mocks) Take time to go through your answers, and talk to your teachers to make sure you understand what you have been told. Maintain lists of key terms and definitions. (but these alone won’t get you through!) Use any online resources you have been told about – they are great for basic knowledge and background reading Time yourself carefully when practising, and during the real thing

7 Revision plans Son/Daughter should have some revision plans/timetable as soon as they can Academic mentors and tutors can help with completing these Students should be making use of the learning resource centre in both learning communities during their school based study periods
